I'm so proud to show you these composting bays! Marty did a wonderful job with these second hand materials, most of it while I was sleeping off a nasty cold / flu. :) Yesterday we painted them to match the fence, and we're thrilled with the outcome!
See? They almost blend in - just a little more fence to go now...
Here you can only just see the bays at the very back. At the front are the potato cages and the "lawn" is just a mass of weeds, but they do look pretty!
Since it's suppose to rain tonight we might not get the painting finished today. Instead I would dearly love to be able to get some native trees from the local nursery and plant out a border around our property. Obviously we won't get all that finished today, but we made a start the other day when we planted the She-Oak. It's not looking very happy, so all we can do is cross our fingers and hope it recovers. The border will serve many purposes - apart from looking nice, it will also hopefully dampen the noise of the trains a little, cover the view of the silo's just a little, and also protect our property from the "Round-Up" that the neighbouring land owners insist on spraying. Here's hoping!
